Apple and Caramel Crumble

Stodgy Puddings

Apple crumble has got to be one of my favourite puddings. I talk all the time about how much I love big stodgy puddings with lashings of custard. I honestly don’t think there’s much better. I usually happily eat things like this all year round, but this summer was just too hot to enjoy such a warming dessert. So, it’s one of the things I’ve been most looking forward to as the weather has turned.

I often stick to a pretty basic apple crumble. But, we’ve got an apple tree in our garden. This means we’re eating apples and apple flavoured things all the time. I could make an apple crumble every day if I wanted to. Which means I’ve had to branch out a little bit with my recipes.

Adding caramel is the perfect solution. Apple and Caramel Crumble is so simple, caramel adds such a lovely flavour and the recipe calls for less sugar, so it’s really no unhealthier than a caramel-less crumble. Or so I like to believe.

This pudding is sweet, crunchy, easy to make and absolutely gorgeous. I love it with custard, because of my custard love. But, you could also serve it with ice cream or cream. It’s even nice on its own.
